there are very few foods whose origin can be tracked down for sure. There is one story I've heard a few times regarding pretzels though. the first time I caught it was as a kid. My father used to get a big ole' tin of Pretzels from either a friend or employer maybe? I was that young. I can't recall. But it was one of those tins they ship popcorn and other snacks nowadays in. Anyway, it contained all kinds of pretzels in it. Rods, Nuggets, Traditional, Ect. On the underside of the lid of the tin was a essay on the history of the pretzel. According to it, the word itself means arms folded in prayer. Some German monk baked them and shaped them as such to give to children who learned their prayers. hence the shape and all. I heard the same story a few times over the years. Most recently on one of my favorite cooking shows called "Good Eats" Chef by the name of Alton Brown puts it on. If you like to cook folks, check him out, he's fun. Regardless, that story appears to be the one stuck to the pretzel. But I wasn't there so I gotta take it just how I take my pretzels. With a grain of salt!
